We are still in Moscow, and can’t really say goodbye to the Christmas setting, which is all about warmth, colour and looking back on good times. The same goes for this frame that Anastasia cute Ryan Adda frame is wearing, while she was doing her final Christmas shopping at Moscow’s’ GUM department store, which has a strong connection to the past.
Their model “One World” idealises a connected and united future. It resembles the world which similarly has no sides, no edges, just its circular feature. The wearer would help them connect with those around them, constantly reminding the wearer of the unity of the humankind.
RYAN ADDA ONE Collection begins with one family, one team, one nation. The ONE collection design draws inspiration from the characteristics of the basic elements of earth, metal. In chemistry, a metal is an element that readily creates positive ions and loves forming metallic bonds. A strong bond is a balanced equation.
The ONE collection uses the elements of designs that show the unity of human bonds that coexist in a balanced and sustainable way. We aim to draw upon the attention that humans aren’t divided, far more connects us than separates us. We should build bridges instead of creating barriers, share knowledge instead of staying singular, to collaborate instead of contradicting.
The subtle messages embedded in the ONE collection are to unite and sustain the few things that we take for granted and to appreciate the fundamental elements of life; balance, bonds and unity. One invention changed the course of humanity, one discovery revolutionised science, one philosophy changed the way people lived, so maybe one collection is all it takes to unite the world.
When two visionary partners united – one with expertise in optometry, the other in dispensing – iconic fashion brand RYAN ADDA was born. RYAN ADDA was created to bring a relaxed and fashion-forward range of eyewear to the market, appealing to men and women in all stages of life.
The brand bridges the gap between young trendsetters and fashionable progressive lens wearers – for patients who want designer frames, at an affordable price. Each RYAN ADDA piece has its own unique story, individually designed taking inspiration from the beauty around us, with the wearer and functionality always being top of mind.
